Aircraft modeling has undergone significant changes over the decades - both in technology and preferences. Magazines
like American Aircraft Modeler, and American Modeler before that, were the best venues for capturing
snapshots of the status quo of the day. I have been scanning and posting excerpts from my collection of
AAM and AM, concentrating on model building articles and old advertisements. Whether you are here to wax
nostalgic, or are just interested in learning history, hopefully you will find what you are seeking. As time permits,
I will be glad to scan articles for you. All copyrights (if any) are hereby acknowledged.

in today's dollars. For instance, that $50 "Bearcat F8F" would be $260 in 2010 money.
